Last week, we made the exciting announcement of which NASA Commercial Crew astronauts will fly with our partners, @Boeing and @SpaceX. Check out this behind-the-scenes time-lapse of the astronauts and employees preparing for the big reveal! #LaunchAmerica #NASA #astronaut #Boeing #SpaceX #space #timelapse
Emily Nelson completed a record-breaking 735th shift as flight director in Mission Control! She surpassed the long-held record of 734 shifts by former flight director, Sally Davis, who came to celebrate with the team. #NASA #space #MissionControl #Houston #FlightDirector #InternationalSpaceStation

Today, we announced the 9 Commercial Crew members who will fly aboard the @SpaceX Crew Dragon and @Boeing Starliner — the first crewed flights from American soil since the final space shuttle mission in 2011. Boeing crew members are: Eric Boe, Chris Ferguson, Nicole Mann, Josh Cassada, and Suni Williams. SpaceX crew members are: Bob Behnken, Doug Hurley, Mike Hopkins, and Victor Glover.

@NASA announces the men and women who will be on board the first flights of the new spaceships built by @Boeing and @SpaceX when Americans are once again launched into space from the USA. #nasa #boeing #cst100 #starliner #spacex #crew #dragon #international #space #station
Yesterday, employees got a close look at the @Boeing Starliner and @SpaceX Crew Dragon ahead of this Friday’s Commercial Crew Program astronaut announcement. Both the Starliner and Crew Dragon are completely autonomous vehicles, but also have manual controls for the crew onboard. #LaunchAmerica #NASA #SpaceX #Boeing #Dragon #Starliner #space #astronaut #commercialcrew
Breakfast — the most important meal of the day! Teams of high school students from across America competed at Space Center Houston to find the best breakfast entrée to send to the crew on the @ISS , with the winning dish from Decatur High School in Decatur, Alabama.

NASA will soon launch astronauts from U.S. soil for the first time since the space shuttle’s retirement aboard @boeing and @spacex commercial spacecraft! 🚀 This month, Boeing finished the dual engine Centaur for the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket that will launch its Starliner spacecraft in the uncrewed Orbital Flight Test. SpaceX shipped its Crew Dragon spacecraft to @nasakennedy to prep for the uncrewed Demo-1 test flight. Both Starliner and Crew Dragon will carry astronauts to the International Space Station (@ISS ) as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program on future missions. Watch for important crew announcements this Friday!

Exciting news! Next Friday, we will announce the astronauts who will be on the first crewed launches from U.S. soil since the final space shuttle mission in 2011. They will launch aboard new @boeing and @spacex commercial spacecraft to the International Space Station (@iss ). #LaunchAmerica #space #spacestation #commerical
Spacewalks are the hardest thing, physically and mentally, that astronauts do. Our 2017 NASA Astronauts train in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (giant pool used to simulate weightlessness) to learn the skills to complete complex spacewalks. #newastronauts #nasa #space #spacewalk
On this day (July 20) in 1969 astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin performed a crewed lunar landing, completing half of a national goal set by President Kennedy in 1961. The crew later finished the goal by returning to Earth safely on July 24. That was Apollo’s first crewed lunar landing, with the last, Apollo 17, in 1972. These pretty amazing sketches are from an old NASA News Reference for a mission similar to Apollo 12! #NASA #Apollo #Apollo11 #Moon #MoonLanding #astronaut #Earth #Columbia #Eagle #MoonDay #history #space #science #NeilArmstrong #BuzzAldrin #MichaelCollins #sketch Image Credit: NASA Apollo Command Module News Reference
How much do you know about Michael Collins, Apollo 11 crew member? Collins remained in the command module "Columbia" in lunar orbit while Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon. He was the only person in the command module orbiting the Moon for the multi-day duration of Armstrong and Aldrin’s trip to the lunar surface #OTD in 1969. He performed the re-docking maneuvers that brought Armstrong and Aldrin safely back to the command module after their ascent from the lunar surface. #2 shows an inscription he left on the mount of a navigation device called a sextant aboard Apollo 11. #3 shows him practicing the procedure a month before the mission. #4 shows the lunar lander “Eagle” ascending (Armstrong and Aldrin aboard) photographed from the command module on July 21, 1969. #NASA #Apollo #Apollo11 #Moon #MoonLanding #astronaut #Earth #Columbia #Eagle #MoonDay #MoonLanding #history #space #science #NeilArmstrong #BuzzAldrin #MichaelCollins Photo Credit: NASA
